You can vote TWC to see thumbnails for a book cover commission! Not my usual subject matter, but I am excited. It’s looking pretty cool and commissions give me the chance to tackle different things.
So I am a lot more like the Shephards than I realized when it comes to ancestry. There was this rumor in my family that we were descended from the White family that came over on the Mayflower. Recently I set out to either prove or disprove that, and I was bummed to find that my White family had sailed to America 19 years later and there was no connection between the two. But then I looked further into the White family I am related to and it just goes back and back into European history and has a bunch of nobles and Irish monarchy and I traced it as far back as 870 in Italy with the 1st Duke of Florence. As my sister said, it was a nice trade off.
Genealogy just makes history seem more exciting and personal and I want to know how I’m related to everyone and what their stories are. Do want to share in the comments if you’re related to anyone interesting? (
whether it’s legit or just a family rumor) Anyway, thanks for reading, see you next week!
